An elevated standpoint

Flagstaff Lake, Maine, US

While canoeing one day on Flagstaff Lake, Maine, I was awestruck by this huge driftwood tree stump. Cradled inside the stump was a sapling, happily vibrant and green. Here was something apparently dead, nurturing like a mother a glorious new expression of life. The life qualities the stump was expressing—comfort, safety, strength, stability—confirmed their spiritual source and richly elevated my standpoint and understanding of life.

We'd love to hear from you!
